disagreements with america or with foreign terrorist groups. there are a wide range of leads being run down. >> gwen: we have heard today that major hasan is conscious and talking. have any of the investigators been able to talk to him yet? >> not so far. he has a military lawyer who's asked first of all for the investigation to be moved, he can't get a fair trial given the publicity and president obama is going down to ft. hood tomorrow. >> gwen: there has been much reporting and commentary about potential links between major hasan and people who link themselveses to terrorism. what can you tell us based on your reporting? >> we are hearing a lot more, and what we can say right now is that among the focuses is major hasan's crossing paths with the northern virginia iman who has left the country and is an american-born iman, but has emerged as one of the leading promoters of al qaeda now based overseas. his lectures which are described as fiery and incendiary have been found, downloaded on several terrorism suspects in north america, canada and the united kingdom. including it appears thoug
the house has passed? >> i am very concerned about the direction is going to take health care in america. i think it is one giant step towards complete government takeover of health care, and i were at the grassroots of america, where most of the people are, and i heard the word health care reform, and i saw the house passed that bill by a narrow margin, i would think it is going to do a lot of things about keeping costs down, but when you get into that bill, you find out that it is going to have taxes go up. it is going to have big medicare cuts in it. it is going to have premiums going up. all contrary to what i think americans expect when they hear the words "healthcare reform." it does nothing for those things, and worse yet, they say costs $1 trillion. frankly, the only way they get the congressional budget office to score this is they have four of -- four years of tax increases and in six years of programs at the 10 years that the cbo looks ahead, but if you take the years 2013 to 2023, at 10-year window, you find out that this is many times over $1 trillion being spent on health care
of america. if she looked out of her window she could see a lot of americans, perhaps most don't want this done. >> well, first off, first off, it's gary k, the wrong gary. look, this is about egos, this is about politicians that think they're omnipotent and they can get away with anything. i take issue with adam. nancy pelosi never campaigned on tax rates going to 45% and 1.1 trillion dollars being spent. it was all about getting the uninsured taken care of. that's all that was about. i think that is the same. three years ago, the republicans said they would never lose leadership and now the democrats think no matter what they do they're going to get away with it. guess what? eleks have consequences we've seen them already and the amazing thing she was out saying we won. if that's winning, they're in big, big trouble come 2010. they're going to get-- >> boy, completely intellectually dishonest to say because a bunch of people are screaming loudly in the hallway outside their office which they have every democratic right to do. >> god bless them. >> to equate that with people are agai
to come to a final vote. i believe the debt can break america and send us into a recession that's worse than the one we are fighting our way out of today. >> why is joe lieberman such a big deal? he is only one of 100 senators if joe lieberman agreed to joint republicans on filibuster. health care reform could be stuck in mud and not go forward in the u.s. senate, guys. steve: joe mentum. gretchen: is he now pushing this potentially to january. >> you are right. we have heard hopes that he could bring it to the floor of the senate by thanksgiving. but a lot of people are saying early next year. and so there are concerns on the democratic side that if you hold off until next year, will it lose momentum in an election year? so the pressure is clearly on in the senate right now to try to get it moving and keep it moving after the big house vote this weekend. brian: you are eventually going to go outdoors, right? >> absolutely. back on my perch. gretchen: thanks so much, mike, for getting up so early early and giving us all the details. parts of the gulf coast from louisiana to florida are

the house prove differently. the affordable health care for america act is a piece of legislation that will provide security and stability for americans who have insurance, affordable options for those who do not, and bring down costs while strengthening the financial health of medicare. it is legislation that is fully paid for and will reduce the long-term federal deficit. given the heated and often misleading rhetoric surrounding this legislation i know this was a courageous vote for many members of congress. i am grateful to them and to the rest of their colleagues for taking us this far. more importantly, so are many millions of americans whose lives will change when we achieve insurance reform. host: the president was on capitol hill prior to the passage. how active a role has he taken on the senate side, or his close advisers liked rahm emanuel guest: emanuel has been more in the forefront in will go to the hill. he knows a lot of the names and faces. my sense is that the president did not realize, as many from both parties did not, how big a fight this would be. earlier in
